Meet Miss Cordelia

A lot has happened since my last real blog journal post. My father had a successful battle with cancer, and my youngest brother survived a massive, near-fatal heart attack at the young age of 48. On the upside, my daughter was married in a gorgeous outdoor wedding in Naples, Florida and the following year our middle son and his wife gave us a beautiful granddaughter to love and cherish! 

Meet Cordelia Anne, named from the book series Anne of Green Gables, where Anne wishes aloud that she had a more sophisticated name like "Cordelia". This is out daughter-in-law's all-time favorite book and from when she was just a girl had if she had a daughter she would name her Cordelia. 

She is now 7 months old and getting teeth. I have the honor of babysitting Miss Cordelia two days a week, so she only has to go to daycare three days instead of five, and so I can form a lasting and meaningful relationship with my little grandbaby. I love her so much. 

I'm back...again...for awhile...

After taking a little hiatus from blogging, I am back. As my previous post I wrote about getting sucked into the Facebook and social media black hole, I managed to get myself so sucked in that I accomplished nothing in the two years that I have been away from Blogger. I hadn't done any writing, drawing, painting or anything that I love to do. I just sat and scrolled, and scrolled and scrolled, clicking like and commenting short phrases and words on my friends walls in response to a photo, a funny meme, or political news commentary. I don't even want to add up the time I spent on Facebook in the past two years. It's embarrassing, and not to mention, depressing. It sucks your life, it sucks your time, it drains your brain. So, I am limiting myself to Facebook and putting more time back into the things I used to enjoy, and also someone new in my life. My new little granddaughter, Cordelia Anne.
